Todd began as a musician with a set of drums, joining with older brother Tim Tobias on guitar. Throughout their school years and beyond, Tim and Todd played together in a number of bands. But Todd's passion was delving into the recording process, which began with a 4-track cassette recorder. While Todd spent ten years fooling around on the 4-track, brother Tim went on to join other bands, including Gem and Guided by Voices, which led to the formation of Circus Devils with Robert Pollard in 2001. More activity followed. Scroll to the bottom to see Todd's complete discography as a  producer/performer.
